Ginkakuji Temple in the Snow by Kawasa Hasui (1886-1957)  

A Winter Meditation

Snow besieges my plank door
I crowd the stove at night.
Although this form exists
It seems as if it doesn't.

I have no idea where the
Months have gone
Every time I turn around
Another year on earth is over.

— Han-shan Te-ch'ing (1546-1623)
